New Snowdon Masters Scholarships for disabled leaders launched
Accelerating disabled leaders through post-graduate study, the scholarships will invest in inspirational disabled leaders funding up to £15,000 for a UK Masters course and a £15,000 stipend while studying.
We’re searching for exceptional students with the ability to create change and influence. Successful candidates will join a unique network of high achieving disabled leaders, working together to inspire a new generation. Applications for 2019 intake close at the end of April.
Paul Alexander, Chief Executive of the Snowdon Trust says;“Whilst our disabled students grants programme has been going since 1981 we have only recently been in a position to offer full scholarships. We launched a limited scholarship programme in 2017 which has proven a success and now, with the support of the GDI Hub, we are delighted to be rolling out nationally. We know we can find, support and help develop some truly outstanding talent!
Students across the world are encouraged to apply for this exciting new opportunity.
Dr Catherine Holloway, Academic Director of the GDI Hub says; ‘Access to higher education is vital to increase leadership by disabled people. We are delighted to be working alongside the Snowdon Trust on such an important programme to support high achieving disabled students become the innovators of tomorrow’
